Mark + Victoria: San Diego Wedding

A IN-N-OUT ROMANCE ON THE WATER

AH THIS SHOT! It is by far one of my absolute favorite photos I've ever taken! These two are SO full of joy because they are married, but they are even more so now that they are pregnant! I'm so excited for these two!

I first met Victoria at In-N-Out when she was one of my managers. Thankfully we stayed in touch via Facebook even after she transferred stores. I was excited to be a part of her and Mark's special day. These two rock! And I'm sure their little one will be just as awesome. Congrats you two!

Kyle + Simyona: Los Angeles Wedding

A Los Angeles Wedding to Remember

Isn't she breathtaking? I mean I can barely stand it!! That dress is out of this world and I just love the smile on her face! Nothing could make this photo any better than the fact that it was a total candid shot! Read on and you'll find out why this shot was candid...

Main Shooter: David Brisco

It was an honor to second shoot for my friend David Brisco. This wedding was breathtaking! I spent a majority of the time with the groom and his guys, but I managed to get a few killer shots, like above, of the bride. Make sure to check out David's work.

Jessica + Spencer: Orange County Wedding

A San Juan Capistrano DIY Wedding

The Millers -- Oh what a joy it was to be a part of their special day! Somehow Jessica and I became friends on Facebook, probably due to all of our mutual friends and the fact that she grew up next door to one of my closest friends. Regardless, she contacted me about photographing her wedding and I was beyond thrilled to accept simply because she's gorgeous, but also because I loved what I saw on her Facebook profile. I knew instantly we would be a good fit.

They were married right up the hill from the house she grew up in. Literally up the hill! I mean talk about an amazing location! Who would have thought it would be right here in Orange County, California? We stepped right into the woods and it was magical. After the ceremony, we headed to the community clubhouse for the reception. Their wedding was a true DIY wedding. I'm so glad I could be a part of it.

Also shout-out to Chip Kimmich, the other photographer (Who knows who was first or second ha!)

I absolutely love they took communion together -- one of my favorite moments from the day.

I love this final image especially because it's so blurry. You can just tell they are beyond stoked to be married and to be celebrated -- these are the true real, raw moments.

Betty + Chris: Orange County Wedding

A San Clemente Backyard Wedding

The Barton wedding is officially hitting the blog & I'm stoked about it. This was the very first wedding I shot back in 2012! So wild!

Well, Chris and I first met at In N Out when he was my manager. He was favorite manager back then, so I was beyond excited when he asked me (and my friend Nico Marino) to photograph his wedding. Nico covered the ladies since he knew Betty better than I did and I covered Chris and the guys. Thankfully it was a small backyard wedding, so a great first wedding and I was able to work on it with a good friend of mine. 

We had a blast walking down the San Clemente pier taking photos after the ceremony, which you can see above -- Don't they look great? I'd say I did a pretty solid job on this for it being my first wedding!
